It was originally a chapel to the hospital, and was founded in the year 1102; but at the dissolution of the priory, it was converted into a parish church for the inhabitants of the precinct of the hospital. It is a vicarage, in the gift of the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Common Council of the City, as governors of the hospital. The church is an old fabric, but was tastefully and substantially repaired, and the interior rebuilt in 1823, by Philip Hardwick, Esq., the surveyor to the hospitaL The present vicar is the Rev. Samuel Wix, who was instituted by the governors in 1808." [J. Elmes, A Topographical Dictionary of London and its Environs (1831) - transcribed by Brian Randell]
